Reasons Your Cashier Hates You

**This is a retail RANT blog** I've been in retail for almost seven years, I've seen a lot and people still surprise me. I have a potty mouth, so if that is an issue I don't recommend you follow my blog. I work at a book store. I love asks and submissions!


Have you ever had people run out to their car to get exact change? Like they have enough money in their hand to pay for their stuff and leave, but they just NEED to get rid of that spare change so they have to run out and rummage through their car for 5 minutes, just so they don’t have to get 37 cents back. Just take your shit and leave.


i hate the word ‘clean’ applied to food.  ‘clean eating’. it’s just another dickhead way to call poor people dirty when they don’t have the time/energy/money to cook and eat wild line-caught salmon and ethically farmed organic quinoa

Anonymous asked: last night I was closing (I work for Starbucks) and it was just me, my shift, and our pre-closer working, and both of them were in the back and i was on bar with 5-6 drinks in the process of being made when this old-ass dude from like russia or somewhere come up to the bar and demanded to know if anyone else was working. when i told him yes but they were busy, he snapped his fingers at me and told me to hurry up because "he doesnt have time to wait around all night for servants." excuse me?




Since the holidays are coming up, I figured I should post about this again. 

If you or someone you know suffers from anxiety, dermatillomania, trichotillomania or find that you simply need something to do with your hands - then you may want to get (or ask for!) a spinner ring

I don’t expect an answer

But is the price difference between a short and a tall hot chocolate really THAT significant?

I had a lady throw a huge fit today because she wanted two short soy hot chocolates for her grandchildren and was outraged that her option was, and she would have to pay for, tall instead.

We calmly came to a compromise that we would split a tall into two tall cups. She was still unhappy but she couldn’t get what she wanted so she was going to have to deal with it.



Women: try and not make the bag to heavy
Me: (i look down a her stuff and it all cans and heavy things. so i grab for second bag.)
Women: oh no i only want one
Me: fine ( jam everything in one bag)
Women: (picks up the bag) this is so heavy.

We can’t defy the laws of physics, here!

There’s times when I work bar alone nonstop for hours with a constant line & if you can’t bother to say thank you when I hand you your fucking drink then you deserve to fall off a cliff with a bunch of hungry sharks at the bottom

One of the stockers thinks he is slick. We were busy so sometimes the employees give us the money got the items cuz we know prices. Well this guy had a bag of chips that was $1, but he gave me 50 cents. He didn’t even let me put a paid sticker on it. I’m gonna see if he tries it again. If he does he is out of here.

Anonymous asked: please, please, PLEASE. other partners. if you're not going to charge a person for something, tell them to their face "it's on me this time," or something along those lines. i absolutely abhor when people come up to me, i charge them for their soy or w/e and they're like "oh, i never get charged for that at other starbucks'." and then look at me like i'm stupid. like person at the store where you don't charge for 1pump syrup. man, that's just wrong. :(



You don’t want to be “the other barista” who works at “the other Starbucks.”

Charge consistently and make sure you explain to a customer if you’re cutting them a deal that it may not be honored everywhere.

So here’s the official policy.

When a customer asks for water, the default is ‘tall’. That said, if they request a larger size, you’re supposed to give it to them. It’s water. Come on. They may have to wait in line for it, but seriously. It’s just water.

I love when people order water and don’t pick it up.

Even when it’s the only thing they ordered!
